Book Review- Mayhem, By Jamie Shaw

When college freshman Rowan Michaels meets gorgeous, up-and-coming rock star Adam Everest, she knows a player like him is the last thing she needs after her ex-boyfriend shattered her heart. But she can't stop thinking about the kiss they shared on his tour bus.

On the first day of school, Rowan is stunned when Adam saunters into her French class. He's soon failing miserably, and, on a whim, she offers to tutor him. But Adam doesn't recognize her as a makeup-free, glasses-clad college student—a far cry from the beautiful, mysterious "Peach" he met at his concert.

During a wild weekend on tour with the band, Rowan can't help falling for the sweet guy buried beneath Adam's rocker persona. Yet she knows she could never compete with the girls constantly throwing themselves at his feet. She'd just end up hurt … again.

Peach is all Adam thinks about, though, and when Rowan realizes this, she has a decision to make: stay just friends to protect her fragile heart … or reveal the truth about the night they met and admit she's fallen completely, hopelessly in love with him.

I came across this book when I had just finished reading the stage dive series, and my first thought was Oh no! not another rock star romance! But I thought id still read it, I mean it would make for a good review either way. I'm so happy I decided to read it. it was very different from the other ones and I really enjoyed it. Not as much as a lot of other readers did but it was good.


I didn't fall in love with Adam like most readers did, however I didn't hate him either. Adam and Rowan had a awesome start with their friendship blooming first. but it really became annoying waiting for them to act on their chemistry. I just wanted them to do something about their feelings left me anxious and almost screaming at the book!

This book didn't have a lot of sex scenes, not that there wasn't any but it wasn't every other page of gross in your face fucking. With just their chemistry and a few make out sessions it still kept a softer sexiness throughout the book. 

My favourite part of the book was the epilogue, I really wanted to see some of Adams thoughts of certain situations so I'm very glad the epilogue was Adams perspective. I also liked how it looked in on the future of Adam and Rowans relationship but also back tracked to pervious moments where you didn't get to see how Adam was feeling.


To be honest I would give the book a 3 star review, I liked this book but it wasn't my favourite rock star love store. This is book 1 of a series and I don't think I will be reading the others... this book had a beginning, middle and end for me and I don't really care to see what will happen in the others.
